I was hoping to have the 8x10 Titan pinhole on my Christmas wish list. Is the release being held up because of problems with the direct positive paper?

Dear Sly,

We await the 10x8 TiTAN as eagerley as you ! Sorry Santa will not have one in time. We have always said December was best date for first deliveries.

We do not have 'problems' with DIRECT POSITIVE, we have problems only with RC, FB is in full stock.

Regards

Thanks Simon.

Good to hear about the fibre direct positive. I've played with it a bit to print old lantern slides. Look forward to trying it in my Titan. Can I have the first one in Canada?:D

Hey, if you've got first dibs, I'm OK with that. How about they send them both at the same time? You'll get yours first because you are 3 times zones to the east!

Hi Sal,

The same emulsion ( except for final preparation and other 'adjustments' ) is coated on FB base and RC Base, the last RC coating in total was 'lost' due to an issue that caused it to fail the QC test as out of its performance parameters. We have since coated FB without any QC issue. Work continues to find a solution for RC.

Darn Canadians. Too polite for your own good. Would a hokey player roll over and say, no no you were at the goal first go ahead and shoot I won't block you. Come on Sly I want to see a good body check. Stand up for what is yours. :D

My grandfather-in-law told me once, "Canadians are polite until we watch hockey." He was 90 years old and yelling at the TV during the Stanley cup.

Here's hoping you find an inexpensive, effective solution soon!

Thats why they are the best... no compromise. I have never found fault in their product over 30 plus years printing.


NOW SLY THATS HOW YOU DO IT... I am sure Simon will send it to me first, after that recommondation.
